anymore in front of business leaders. >> let me ask you this, margie. nancy pelosi argued that the democrats must stand strong against raising the medicare eligibility age. will democrats hold the line on this? >> i don't think there's any question. we cannot raise the age of medicare. this would be a marriage major cut in benefits. it would hurt people from 65 to 67 because the truth of the matter is, many people in the united states are not living longer. those are people, poor women are actually living shorter. people who make less money are living -- i have not seen their longevity grow. we cannot do that. that is a cut in benefits that we don't want and the american people are adamantly against it, overwhelmingly against it. >> is that a deal breaker, then, for democrats if the ageç eligibility is on the table? >> i think if the age of eligibility is on the table -- and i doubt very much that it will be. i believe that the president is not going to support that. and i believe that the democrats are not going to support changing the age of eligibility. it is nothing
